Changing national defense priorities and rapidly developing technologies are fueling the trend toward interconnections between a broad arrayof defense and non defense networks. These networks involve not only real-time combat command and control but also logistics, intelligence,electronic data bases and a host of other nodes. The days of testing and evaluating individual weapon systems in a stand-alone mode withoutconcurrently assessing them as integral parts of a much larger network of players are over. This national conference will focus on this reality and address how test and evaluation can assure that those systems destined to function in such a net-centric highly interconnected combat environment will function as required. Recent policy initiatives to systematically apply Design of Experiments DOE methodology to Test and Evaluation activities of the DoD and DHS will also be presented and discussed.
